steroid related cataract

Anyone have experience with a posterior subcapsular cataract? (Most commonly associated with steroid use)

I was diagnosed with one this year and we are taking a "wait and see" attitude. Sounded like the thought was it won't get any better left alone, but it won't get any worse either, so long as I stay off steroids. Has that been your experience, or has the cataract gotten worse?
I had cataract surgery (cataracts caused by steroids). They did it quickly, not much waiting. Sometimes it depends on your complaints about vision problems.
